SX50 Macro visiting a quice tree

... Well, almost. And discovering perhaps the cleverest spider in the world

We have in the garden a little quince tree that's in flower now for the first time:

Today my SX50 asked me to take it there and it shot a metallic tiny bug:

a bee-like insect:

a little ladybug:

and a bigger one (at the right corner the remainings of an eaten corpse) :

But the big surprise was a tiny spider, less than 7mm between the front legs, that ran all the time on the other side of a leaf lest be photographed After a while he hid himself and I returned to my garden work. Then after an hour I achieved to shot him from like 5 meters away, the camera at tele end(!). I was in the shadow, so probably he couldn't see me. It was incredible!

An here is our "hero":

Thank you for looking,
